Ponderings – “Winds of Change”

What seems to happen so often (to me at least) is that whenever a change is suddenly desired- a change in health, relationships, perspective- everything feels… different. Like there’s an aura of ambition and drive, of revolution and invigoration which uplifts us and consequently the world around us. “The Winds of Change” as I like to call it (yes, I’m aware that I’m not the first to coin the phrase).

These winds are great, a welcome sign that change is in the air. But sometimes they blow a little too hard. Ok, I get it. I asked for change, now you’re giving it to me. But not at a hundred miles an hour from every different direction! Change is supposed to be a gradual process, not a sudden, raging tornado! One step at a time please.

See, when I think of art, I think of a painting, like the Mona Lisa by Leonardo da Vinci, or a sculpture like The Thinker, by Auguste Rodin. After all, if you went to an art museum, for example, that’s what you’d expect to see. Continue reading “This World Is But A Canvas”

It’s A Small World?

That’s a funny saying. It’s true enough, the coincidences we so often experience that make us laugh and wonder if our world really isn’t that big after all. Like running into a high school classmate after not seeing them in years. Or taking a long flight miles from home only to see someone you know at the airport. Those sort of things, the things that make us stop and think that our world’s a lot smaller than it seems. Continue reading “It’s A Small World?”

Beauty

“The more often we see the things around us- even the beautiful and wonderful things- the more they become invisible to us. That is why we often take for granted the beauty of this world: the flowers, the trees, the birds, the clouds- even those we love. Because we see things so often, we see them less and less.” – Joseph B.
